Delaney and Walsh in Queens County
« on: Sunday 03 February 19 23:22 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I have two ancestors; both listed on census information as being from Ireland. I have them living in Oldham Lancashire from the 1861 Census. The 1881 Census mentions Queens County as follows;

Address:   King Street, 11 Court, Oldham
Name: Catherine Delaney   
Place of Birth: Queens County, Ireland          
Age: 37 years
Name: John Delaney      
Place of Birth: Queens County, Ireland    
Age: 39 years
Occupation: Sawyer

I have lots of information after the 1861 Census - they have several children all in Oldham and I have information of their deaths and burials but I have nothing before 1861. On all of their children's birth certificates Catherine's maiden name is given as WALSH and as the following 1861 Census lists them as already being married aged 22 years I guess they were married in Queens County;

Address: Henshaw Street, St Mary’s, Oldham   
Name: John Delany      
Place of Birth: Ireland       
Age: 22 years 
Relation to Head of House: Head      
Occupation: Speed Tenter, Cotton
Name: Catherine Delany   
Place of Birth: Ireland      
Age: 22 years 
Relation to Head of House: Wife      
Occupation: Outdoor Labourer


Could anyone help with any other information please, it would be highly appreciated.
Thanks, Luke

Seeing the marriage record could show if Catherine was a widow hence MORRIS
If she was, she could still have a maiden name of WALSH
